Slomovitz Cited with Butzel Award

Emphasis on Unity at Federation Meeting

Rejecting the villifica-
tions evidenced in recent
weeks and calling into evi-
dence the Detroit Jewish
communal responses to cur-
rent needs and to calls for
action in Israel's defense,
Judge Avern Cohn, in his
presidential address at the
56th annual meeting of the
Jewish Welfare Federation,
Wednesday evening at Adat
Shalom Synagogue, de-
clared that the unity that
has marked activities here
reaffirmed the strength of
the community's solidarity.
Applying his thesis to the
experiences in the recently
instituted 1983 Allied
Jewish Campaign-Israel
Emergency Fund, Judge
Cohn pointet1 • to the
promptness of generous re-
sponses and interpreted
their unified indications,
stating:
"Here at home, we have
not overlooked the needs of
our own, especially in a year
that has been economically
devastating for so many.
With a reliance on volun-
tary agencies to assume a
greater burden of social wel
"fare costs — costs prev-
iously assumed by govern-
ment — there is an added
challenge to Federation.
"While the Jewish
Family Service and
Jewish Vocational Serv-
ice were affected most di-
rectly by increased case
loads, requiring addi-
tional staff, all of our
agencies have been
touched. However, work-
ing together with our
budgeting and planning
divisions, they labored
with persistence and im-
agination to effect bal-
anced budgets without
hurting the quality of
service."
At the annual meeting,
Philip Slomovitz of The
Jewish News was awarded
the Fred M. Butzel Award
for outstanding community
service.
Slomovitz received the
Butzel Medallion and a
framed citation commend-
ing the length and scope of
his service and his role in
communal and civic affairs.
Slomovitz, in his re-
sponse, reminisced about
the leadership of Fred M.
Butzel, in whose name the

award was established in
1951, 33 already having re-
ceived the community
honor since then. He also
recalled the community ex-
periences and joined with
Judge Cohn in emphasizing
the dignity with which this
community developed and
the unity with which it em-
braced its obligations.
The presentation of the
award to Slomovitz was
to have been made by
Leonard , N. Simons. His
regrettable illness made
it impossible for him to
attend the annual Feder-
ation meeting, his in-
capacity having de-
veloped only a short time
prior to the meeting.
His prepared remarks
were read to the gathering
by George M. Zeltzer,
former president of the
Jewish Welfare Federation
and presently the adminis-
trative vice president of
Federation.
Zeltzer added his per-
sonal greeting to the pre-
sentation, in which Simons
praised the recipient's role
professionally as well as in
his communal role. His em-
phasis was on the unity
Slomovitz helped create in
Detroit Jewish ranks.
In his response, Slomovitz
reminisced about the Butzel
role which served as an in-
spiration to Detroit Jewry
in all the creative commu-
nity developments.

He joined in a call for
continuing unified ef-
forts in behalf of the so-
cial and educational pro-
grams as well as in sup-
port of a protected Israel.
Judge Cohn, in his
speech, outlined problems
facing the Jewish commu-
nity and the community's
reactions. He mentioned the
divisiveness over Israel's
action in recent months,
growing anti-Semitism, the
economic problems in this
community and population
changes.
In response to these prob-
lems, Cohn related how
Federation had established
several task forces to study
the needs, mentioned the
new facilities under con-
struction for the elderly, ac-
tions of the Jewish Commu-
nity Council to confront
anti-Semitism, and the fact
that the community has
raised $10 million in just
two months for the 1983 Al-
lied Jewish Campaign.
The meeting also saw
elections for at-large mem-
bers of the Federation
Board of Governors. Those
elected for three-year terms
were: Paul D. Borman,
Hugh W. Greenberg, Ed-
ward C. Levy, Jr., Robert H.
Naftaly and A. Alfred
Taubman. Re-elected for
three-year terms were:
Rabbi Irwin Groner, Stuart
E. Hertzberg, Jessie Stern
and Shelby Tauber.

Carolyn Greenberg pre-
sented the nominating slate
which was approved
unanimously.
The new executive di-
rector of Federation,
Wayne L. Feinstein, was
introduced to the com-
munity. In an address
evaluating the ideologi-
cal concepts of Jewish
community organiza-
tions, Feinstein defined
approaching obligations
to be tackled in the corn-
ing year.
Fred
Sichel,
vice
president of the Council of
Jewish Federations, in an
address outlining the na-
tional communal ap-
proaches on the ,agenda,
during the 50th year of CJF,
recalled that. two De-
troiters, Kurt Peiser and
Henry Wineman, had im-
portant roles in the found-

TORONTO (JTA) —
Ahmed Ben Bella, the
former president of Algeria
who was imprisoned for
many years under the re-
gime of Houari
Boumedienne, said in a re-
cent interview with the
French periodical
"Politique Internationale"
that the Arabs will never
accept the Zionist fact.
"I am an Arab and Pales-
tine does not only concern
Palestinians; it concerns all
Arabs. Even if the Palesti-
nians are forced to accept
some kind of solution, the
Arabs in general will never
accept the state of Israel,"
he said.

"Sooner or late they will
have the atomic bomb; this
is inevitable. At that point
we will weigh down so heav-
ily on the Israelis that they
will be unable to resist us.
They don't have a chance."

Sanctions Eased

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The civil administration on
the West Bank has eased re-
strictions it imposed on stu-
dents and faculty of univer-
sities in the territory. The
decision was announced by
Gen. Yigal Karmon, acting
head of the administration,
at a meeting with officials of
Bir Zeit, Najah and
Bethlehem universities.

No Statement

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The State Department re-
fused to make any direct
comment Tuesday on the
meetings in Amman be-
tween King Hussein of Jor-
dan and Palestine Libera-
tion Organization chief
Yasir Arafat.
